Today in History - Apollo 15
Forty years ago today, on July 30, 1971, Apollo 15 astronauts David Scott and Jim Irwin landed on the moon, and explored the surface using the first Lunar Rover.
Forty years ago! The abdication of the moral responsibility of Americans (humans) to explore the cosmos since then is disgusting to me. What are we alive for if not to explore space? Is it all just Social Security and Medicare from now on? I guess it is.
Man, what we might have done. That will be the epitaph for America, I'm afraid.
